They say dynamite comes in small packages and this is certainly true of our tiny but mighty BizBuddy Obu!
“We moved to Point Cook two years ago after living in the South Eastern suburbs for 8 years. It was a big decision, but one that I don’t regret at all. We love the community here and have made so many friends. My children have benefitted immensely from the regular interactions with other families and that means a lot to me – especially for my son who was so shy!
I am an author, businesswoman, singer, musician and I love to cook and also dance! Phew! That’s a lot…
I come from the South of India and came to Australia in 2006 after I got married. We had our son and hence I wanted to be at home with him for a couple of years. My educational background is Master of Science, Biotechnology. When nobody wanted my awesome services, I decided to get into mortgage broking as my own boss.
That has been the best decision I ever made. As with any business, there was blood, sweat and tears for the first 3 years. After that I found my passion – my mission to help women become financially empowered and haven’t looked back since then.
In 2014, I wrote my first book “Smart Women, Smart Homeloans” – a first home guide for women. So far it has helped so many first home buyers and I believe it will help many more. The testimonial for this comes from the number of people who borrow my book from the Point Cook and Werribee Plaza library.
When I do coffee catch ups, most people tell me that I must be so busy and I must not have time to do other things. I surprise these people and say – oh, where do I start…
I sing for a band – just the Indian filmy songs. I was lucky to get classical vocal training at a young age and it helps me to this day. Last year, I went back to playing a musical instrument called “Veena”.
My Husband Vijai (a start-up entrepreneur in IT) and I are blessed with a lovely son (9 yrs. old) and daughter (5 yrs. old) and love cooking for our family and friends.
I am looking at starting a new social group called “Innerwheel” in Point Cook. Innerwheel is one of the largest women’s service voluntary organisations in the world.
So, as I say, there is never a dull moment in my life and I choose exactly what I want to do in my life!
BizBuddyHub has my support, because I strongly believe in the concept and one-day life will change for so many people who don’t have to travel an hour or more a day just to work! That we truly can create a future where community and work are more aligned.”
